During a child custody dispute, parents are under a microscope. Everything they have done or said, and anything they have failed to do or say, could come up. Further, personal shortcomings can be used as a weapon by a vindictive ex.
After divorce or separation, many parents remain active participants in raising their children. However, challenges can arise if you share child custody and work.
Rigillo v. Rigillo was a child custody/access appeal decision. At trial the judge limited the father's parenting time to the minimal amount that he had secured under a without prejudice temporary order where the mother was the primary caregiver. The Ontario Court of Appeal held that it is mandatory for a court to consider the MPT principle.
